Home late on Weds evening after a 15+ hour drive. The mule deer buck fell to a single 115 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip that penetrated completely on a broadside shot, through the rib cage. Trashed both lungs. Range was 350+ yards, shot was from prone. Death was quick.

Also got an antelope at about 255 yards, with my 30-06 and a 165 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip. Waiting on photos of that. I only have one photo that I took.

Home now. Tired. Going to bed.

Regards, Guy

Thanks. I love my trips to Wyoming. Been going there about every other year or so for nearly 20 years. Wyoming has always treated me well.

Regards, Guy

Congrats Guy! Interesting that a cartridge that's been around longer than I have (.25/06) can be effective at long range. When reading the gun and hunting mags it's easy to get the impression that the latest and greatest 6.5 whatever is what you gotta have. Almost forgot....the scope has to have as many lines as a Chicago street map.
